‘The Martian Guy’ – Length 2:09

Lisbeth used to work with the Police Force. When her violent relationship partner suddenly died she really hit the booze. Depression and all dark things descended. She lost her job and home. She moved to a tiny Housing Commission flat. She met a Martian. She hasn’t had a drink for 18 months.

You can spend the money on new housing for poor people and the homeless, or you can spend it on a football stadium or a golf course’
